ANNOUNCEMENTS

SECOND INDEPENDENCE DAY
“Juneteenth marks our country’s second independence day. Though it has long been celebrated among the African American community, it is a history that has been marginalized and still remains largely unknown to the wider public. The legacy of Juneteenth shows the value of deep hope and urgent organizing in uncertain times. This Museum is a community space where that spirit can continue to live on – where histories like this one can surface, and new stories with equal urgency can be told.” https://nmaahc.si.edu/blog-post/celebrating-juneteenth; Watch the video from the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture through a tour of the Slavery and Freedom exhibition.
     Jerry Schearer, Office of Inclusion and Outreach
